Strong foundations driving our success.

NSB was founded in beautiful St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, in 1993. Since that time, we have been delivering outstanding technical staffing and consulting services to clients locally, nationally, and internationally.

Our employees have been instrumental in delivering major projects such as Hibernia, Terra Nova, White Rose, Sable, Hebron, and multiple projects in Western Canada.

NSB Omega proudly maintains its headquarters in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, but operates on a global basis. In 2015, NSB entered into a partnership agreement with Norwegian company Omega, which has expanded both companies' access to global markets. NSB Omega continues to expand its footprint and is actively seeking business opportunities in multiple jurisdictions.
